iPass & WEP Shared Encryption
Posted on 2007-11-20
We currently use iPass for all our clients to connect remotely via a wireless connection (either at home or away from the office).
We've recently upgraded our clients to the latest version (don't have the details to hand), but can't seem to connect to a wireless network if the encryption on the router is WEP Shared. This is causing some problems because if we provide a client with home broadband, the router we provide them uses a WEP Shared encryption key. Not being able to solve the problem, or make a change on the router with regards to encryption type will require a massive recall to update the config file.
So my question is, has anyone managed a successful connection with iPass? Or does anyone know how to change the ini file to allow the connection? At the moment, we get an error saying it was unable to assciocate itself with "RouterName". The key has been entered correctly.
We have tested it, and it does work with WEP Open, and WPA. Please note I'm not asking for a debate on different security types; we've since been made aware WEP Shared is not ideal(!)
Hope you can help...
